    Marlie Keen was trying to lead a quiet, ordinary life. She thought the knowing - the clairvoyance that allowed her to witness crimes as they happened - had been destroyed in the nightmare of her past. Then one night it returned with a vengeance, and she desperately needed to find someone to make it stop.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Dream Man to be better than the print version?

    I love the convenience of having the book on audio. I work a lot of hours and sometimes listen while I'm doing paperwork.


    What about Phil Gigante’s performance did you like?

    I love his deep gruff voice. I didn't much like is voice for the ladies, because he indeed is NO lady :) Thats not a bad thing though.


    Any additional comments?

    I love the book. It's excellent and Marley is the best. Really makes a believer of you. I read it years ago but recently bought the audio version. Great listen!

    With indifferent parents, Iona Sheehan grew up craving devotion and acceptance. From her maternal grandmother, she learned where to find both: a land of lush forests, dazzling lakes, and centuries-old legends. Ireland. County Mayo, to be exact. Where her ancestors’ blood and magic have flowed through generations - and where her destiny awaits.

    Would you try another book from Nora Roberts and/or Katherine Kellgren?

    I love Nora Roberts, I love the old books and I love the new books, but this one? I can't decide if it's just the narration that has me thinking I missed something or if there just wasn't much to miss. The final showdown I was expecting some crazy stuff to happen and it's like they get started then it's done. I honestly said out loud, "I think I might have skipped a part." But no, it was just short. I enjoyed the story and I love the characters but it just didn't have a lot of substance. I felt like the story was getting good and then it's over. And as far as Katherine Kellgren, NO, I did not like any part of her narration.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    NR seems to have a good grasp on the aspects of magic and where it comes from, but it would have been a better story if the characters were a little fuller, if that makes sense.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Katherine Kellgren?

    ANYONE! I don't think I've heard a book narrated by KK but I didn't like it at all. All the women except for Iona sounded ancient! Until I realized how young the women were I thought they were old ladies. Way over dramatic! I like a little drama when action scenes happen but it was just way WAY too dramatic for my taste. Now I can't see Brana or Maura as the beauties she describes, I keep seeing them older. I might buy the book just to clear my head!


    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    A little more detail. I liked the story between Iona and Boyle, but again, it just happened way too fast and very few details made it a hard listen for me.


    Any additional comments?

    I want to hear the other books in this series but I really hope someone chooses and different narrator. Other wise I'll probably buy the book.

  • The Next Always: Inn BoonsBoro Trilogy, Book 1

    The historic hotel in Boonsboro has endured war and peace, the changing of hands, and even rumored hauntings. Now it’s getting a major face-lift from the Montgomery brothers and their eccentric mother. As the architect in the family, Beckett’s social life consists mostly of talking shop over pizza and beer. But there’s another project he’s got his eye on: the girl he’s been waiting to kiss since he was sixteen.

    What did you love best about The Next Always?

    The story was great, it didn't leave lags or any boring parts, I really liked it.


    Any additional comments?

    A lot of ppl said that they didn't like this series and that it seems more like she (NR) was pushing the Inn instead of telling the story. I don't agree, yes the pride in the Inn is there but it seems to come from the characters as odd as that sounds. I liked it and can't wait to read the others!
